Canadian Konami Code

O Canada. O Konami. O Canadian Konami. O Konada? Canami?

O Canada. O Konami. O Canadian Konami. O Konada? Canami?

Hahahahahahaha! Canada is putting out a new $10 bill to mark their 150th birthday. They made a snazzy new web page where you can do a 360-degree view of it (and see that, once again, it is like a million times prettier than any American money).

You can also do something else: if you enter the Konami code on that page, you get a fun li’l surprise. Be sure to have the volume up (but not a lot); there’s an auditory component.

If you don’t want to do it yourself, a couple of people have recorded it and put it on on the YouTubes. Like this one:

If you didn’t do it yourself because you don’t know what the Konami code is, then are you sure this is the right website for you? Ah, just google it or something. It even has its own Wikipedia page.

Basically what this means is that the Bank of Canada’s web development team has some GREAT BIG NERDS in it!

Also, O Canada is a way better song than Star Spangled Banner.
